So basically me and my new husband are in NY for our honeymoon with nothing!!
His bags arrived the day we were leaving.. We spent the whole trip with none of our stuff (mind you I had planed and bought my outfits for this trip weeks ahead)
A month later…
I still have not received my bag.. It’s bringing tears to my eyes writing this… I just completed my itemized list .. which I probably forgot a million things on anyways…
I can’t believe I lost 10 brand new nightie..
I only wore two of them!
I lost all my brand new makeup Lancome, Dior, Mac… (I never spend crazy money on makeup, but it was my HONEYMOON! I wanted it to be perfect so I went all out)
A La roc dress.. French Connection dress, Aqua tops.. Everything gone..
4 brand new victoria secret bras (like $50 a piece)
God only knows how much ill get back
All my shopping I did on the Honeymoon… everything … gone..
I can’t believe it.. I think I’m kind of in denial..
Sometimes I randomly start crying when I go to spray my marc jacobs daisy and it isnt there..
Or when I am showering and my shampoo and conditioner isnt there…
I dont knwo what to do.. i called them everyday twice for two weeks..
Nothing..
I tried being nice.. I tried yelling… They don’t know ANYTHING…
I AM SO DISTRAUGHT!
These items are priceless…
Even if they reimburse me fully (which they wont!)
All the time and effort I spent looking for and buying the perfect outfits the perfect scents, the perfect colors for my honeymoon.. and for what.. to not get to use most of it.. To never see it again..
How could they lose my bag? What could they have possibly done with it?

There I was, sporting my boyfriends’ XXL t-shirts and the exact same jeans I arrived in, every single day… in super hot Africa! The worst thing was that the people at the airport didn’t really care about the situation. They kept telling us: come back later, come back tomorrow, we don’t know what will happen… it drove me mad! I was so relieved when at last, the suitcases were found. After that, it was relaxation all the way.

On my last flight they lost my bag coming and going. Yep, that was a mess. But I think that God is teaching me patience, and I have learned just how little I really need to get by. So in the end, it has been a positive learning experience. However, at the end of my last flight I looked at my boyfriend (who picked me up from the airport) and said: I won’t be flying for a while, and I am very happy about that! And, glory be, my bag was there waiting for me (the first time in 3 flight cycles my bag hadn’t been somewhere “special” or at least one flight behind me). Eventually this has to get better though; the system is so inefficient that it has to be expensive paying someone to bring all those bags to customers. I know I had the baggage man bring my luggage to the club once to be placed in my boyfriend’s car. Things have to change!

I had a similar experience at Dulles, I refuse to fly into or out of Dulles, only BWI and National airport.

Never fly an airline that’s in bankruptcy (usairways)
Finesse the fine art of traveling lighter….which leads to, always carry your MOST IMPORTANT ITEMS in your carryon (Bella, you know you need and love your cosmetics/toiletries etc. like most folks need their glasses, plus replacing cosmetics is expensive). Never check anything that you will miss if you never see your luggage again.
Ship items back to yourself via the US Postal Service. Went shopping, worried about how your gonna get stuff home without having to pay for your luggage being overweight? Pick up a Flat Rate shipping box, fill it to the brim with stuff, and ship it yourself anywhere in the US for under $9 bucks.

for goin home i take american or delta..and im cool. bwee can have a 200-300 dollar round trip to anywhere in the caribeean and im still not stepping on that plane. i have greedy friends who only fly on them and airJA just for the food. but not me..american/delta all the way…maybe usair, but they suck too.
i travelled this weekend to fl and had my seat given to a standby although i was within the correct boarding time. just got there later than others due to security…keep in mind no pages were sent…and this was none other than airtran. they used to be good. but theyre realll crappy now.
southwest is by far my fav. airline for domestic flights..cheap, friendly staff and never any delays.

They used to be a our “go to” airline but lately they have not been up to par. My boyfriend was flying back to LA from Detroit and sat on the plane for 3 hours after the flight was already delayed by 1 hour. The flight attendants barely brought them anything to drink and never offered any food, all the while promising to be ready to leave in the next 30 min. I, like some of the other people here, have had my battles with US Airways. But mine started when they merged with horrible horrible America West. Now, Southwest has always been dependable and I have recently discovered how good Alaska Airlines is. I purchased a ticket on the day of travel for a last minute trip from LA to DC (National, not Dulles)to a wedding and it included a rental car for $400. Can’t beat that and I was always treated as though they were glad to have my business.
